For the 3rd time, the TeKoMed-Workshop will be held in Lübeck. This year it will be a two days event from 7th to 8th of November 2012. Objective of the workshop is the usage of Service-oriented principles in the domain of medical devices, mainly focusing on device integration in medical institutions like for example hospitals. Of course, everybody is invited to participate! Find more informations on the workshop website.
The scope of the SOCNE workshop is on not only on SOAs in general, but also on (resource constrained) device centric environments, including H2M and M2M scenarios. And of course the REST folk is welcome as well :).
WS4D-jCoAP is an implementation of the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) for Java. CoAP is an exciting emerging protocol defined by the IETF CoRE WG, which is a RFC – Proposed Standard. To put things short, CoAP is supposed to create an alternative to HTTP for RESTful APIs on highly resource-constrained devices. While HTTP usually bases on TCP, CoAP defines rudimentary reliability features so you can run it on UDP and therefore save a lot of protocol overhead that inherently comes with TCP.
Now that you have an idea of what CoAP is (if you hadn’t already) we want to share our latest efforts on implementing CoAP. Until now WS4D-jCoAP has grown to be a complete CoAP draft 18 implementation of the client and server side and it is still evolving.
If you are curious right now or want to support us, check out the gitlab repository. Have fun!
The CeBIT 2011 is over and we proudly showed what is possible with the WS4D frameworks. An Pulse/SpO2 sensor using 6LowPAN and a remote controlled window live from the Embedded 2011 were the highlights.
We showed the total lineup from small devices using the uDWPS up to the newest App for Android using the JMEDS Stack.
PipesBox was used to control the window via a twitter API. That was awesome. Feel free to use our open source stacks and get infected by the web service idea and get curious for the CeBIT 2012.
Posted in Conference, DPWS | Comments Off on The CeBIT 2011 is over. Welcome CeBIT 2012.
As we already posted, the CEBIT in Hannover and the Embedded World on Nürnberg are getting closer. So we posted a preview on the CEBIT demonstrator a few days ago, showing WS4D-uDPWS in action (see the SpO2 finger clip sensor).
Now would like to give a preview on the Embedded World demonstrator here. The video shows our Smart-Window, opening and closing depending on the humidity. The involved technologies are 6LoWPAN, IPv6, CoAP, DPWS, Digitalstrom and several of our existing WS4D tools. Feel free to comment…
The University of Rostock exhibits on the embedded world in Nürnberg (01.03. – 03.03.2011) and promotes WS4D technologies to overcome the problems of the heterogeneous hardware structure with advanced cross domain solutions. See the “Internet of Things” and make your first experiences with WS4D. We will present you:
A complete overview about the WS4D technologies and its potentials for the creation of smart cross domain systems.
Advanced software toolkits for WS4D development with C/C++ and Java.
The WS4D-PipesBox tool for the easy graphical creation of device ensembles and service mashups.
We will demonstrate the power and simplicity of WS4D in the domain of Home Automation (Smart Objects, digitalStrom).
